'Today' show co-hosts react to Hoda Kotb replacing Matt Lauer

Hoda Kotb is officially joining Savannah Guthrie at the head of the "Today" show!

On Tuesday morning, Guthrie and Kotb made the joint announcement that she'd continue to permanently fill Matt Lauer's position as the co-anchor of NBC's premiere morning show.

"This has to be the most popular decision that NBC News has ever made!" Guthrie said with a smile.

Clearly, the duo -- who called themselves "sisters" on Tuesday morning -- are excited about the announcement, but how did the other "Today" show hosts react to the news? Of course, they were all equally as supportive of Kotb, who has been co-hosting the fourth hour of "Today" with Kathie Lee Gifford since 2008. She'll continue in that role going forward.

Kathie Lee, Savannah, Al Roker, Carson Daly, Megyn Kelly and more "Today" personalities took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to congratulate their colleague on the promotion:
